    The windows from where they would draw any lines are essentially her patio doors in her dining room area :-( Do they work with you to suggest amendments to plans or will they just outright reject?

They take into account orientation of the site (we are south facing) and things such as whether it will overlook overshadow neighbouring properties (which is...

    Thanks so much everyone for your replies. I will offer a cuppa, and generally just be friendly and open - thats all i can do. I guess i thought it was because of the objection that they were visiting my home - but it seems to be the normal thing to do as part of the application....? Thanks...

    Thanks for raising that point jonbey. Is it appropriate to converse with them whilst they are here?! Maybe appropriate to discuss the weather :LOL: but specifics of the application?

    Thank you. Is the planning officer just attending to adhere to processes? It all just seems very drastic :(

    Single Storey Extension on Sloping Ground

    Thanks so much for your quick reply. I do get that vibe, however cant seem to think why the planning department overlooked it. Maybe the drawings didnt make the slope clear enough... I tend to be a bit of a stress head and impatient when it comes to waiting for responses from the planning...
